Tennis Fashion on the Runway

Does it happen that tennis fashion influences the off-court fashion? It certainly does. Jean Paul Gaultier turned the runway into a tennis court for his 2010 ready-to-wear spring-summer collection for the house of Hermes.
The pleated skirts, polo T-Shirts, long length cardigans and polo-style dresses which sassily fell off the shoulder were complimented by headbands, tennis bags and rackets. The tennis match on the background completed the look.

As for the inspiration, Gaultier told, 

        I don’t recall her name, I know nothing about tennis. I saw a photo 
        of her from the 20s or 30s, and I liked her silhouette, and I said 
        ‘allez, let’s play tennis.’

Well, you shouldn't be a guru of tennis to guess - Suzanne Lenglen, tennis diva of 1920-s! 

Do you like the idea and the collection itself? Tell us your thoughts!
